The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair is the original of a collective of four concurrent and contiguous fairs that transform central Ann Arbor into a massive outdoor art gallery each July. Established in 1960 as part of Ann Arbor’s Summer Sidewalk Sales, the Street Art Fair quickly became a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization with a mission of increasing public knowledge and appreciation for contemporary fine arts and fine crafts. Over the ensuing 56 years, and additional art fairs, the Original Fair has continued to focus on the art, the artists, and the art buyers. Known for its consistently high quality, all original work, the Street Art Fair now resides on the streets surrounding the historic Burton Carillon Tower and the tree-lined central campus of the University of Michigan and does not host sidewalk sales or vendor booths. The Street Art Fair is the only Ann Arbor fair to be named to AmericanStyle’s list of Top-Ten Art Fairs and is known for attracting collectors, corporate buyers, and gallery representatives. The combined Ann Arbor Art Fair draws more than 500,000 fairgoers from across the nation.
